Simply Wonderful Lavender Lemonade {Recipe}

30 Flares 30 Flares ×


I love lemonade, especially when it is homemade! I was able to pick to huge bag-fulls of lemons off their Meyer Lemon tree this last week. It has inspired some creativity! I am going to experiment with the lemons and try to make some home cleaners and recipes with the whole lemon, utilizing both the juice and the peel!




  • 2 cups of freshly juiced lemons {preferably organic}
  • 5 cups water {divided}
  • Lavender buds {or the whole head of buds}
  • Sugar {you choose what works best for you!}


Start by juicing the lemons till you have 2 cups! Heat up water and measure out 2 cups. Pour 1 tablespoon of lavender buds into the hot water. {In my picture you will see yellow with the lavender, it is a lemon peel. Unfortunately, I left it in too long and I could taste the bitterness of the peel, so maybe do without the peel.} Pour your sugar choice in the hot water as well and let it dissolve. I actually used Stevia for the first time in this and I think I used 5-6 Tablespoons and it doesn’t taste super sweet. Sugar options would be agave, refined sugar, honey, whatever you want. Mix most of the sugar with the warm water so it dissolves, but feel free to add more to your finished product to sweeten to your likeness. After the lavender has steeped for 5-10 minutes, use a strainer as your pour the hot water into the lemon juice. Add three more cups of water to the pitcher and mix.




  • Feel free to use more than one tablespoon of lavender. In this recipe it is subtle.
  • If you don’t have separated lavender buds, you can pick lavender from your yard. I just throw in the whole flower section, green part and all!
  • You can steep mint as well to make a mint lavender lemonade or just use it as garnish! Or use basil!
  • Experiment with sweeteners and how sweet you want it! I personally like my lemonade a little sour!


Now you have Lavender Lemonade! Enjoy!

    I never considered adding lavender to lemonade (probably because I don’t like lavender), but I know plenty of folks that do.

    I have a bunch of lavender buds that I use for making bath and body products. Never even thought about adding them to food or drinks, neat idea!
